Our farm is nestled in the heart of the charming South Pennines, surrounded by ancient woodland, dry-stone walls, rivers and dramatic moorland. Situated in the grounds of an old 19th Century brewery, our location is steeped in history.
We are committed to ethical and sustainable farming practices. We rear our Yorkshire-born Rainbow Trout using a unique process. Our trout are raised in pure rainwater pools and fed organic feed, free from harmful chemicals and antibiotics. We take pride in using no insecticides, no pesticides, and generating no waste.
Our farm is home to a variety of crops, including herbs, salads, vegetables, and tomatoes, which grow alongside our trout in perfect harmony. We focus on cultivating great tasting food using the nutrients from our trout ponds, rather than large crop yields.
We know that happy trout make for happy customers. Our artisan smokehouse is custom-built and uses locally sourced wood chips to cure our trout using exciting blends and recipes. We process our trout by hand on-site, using only the finest ingredients, many of which we grow on the farm.
We are constantly striving to innovate and improve. We are committed to reducing our carbon footprint by using renewable energy to power our farm. We take pride in sourcing our ingredients, equipment, and expertise locally, and we believe that supporting our local community is an essential part of our mission.
At The Burnt Hill Herb Company, we're dedicated to sustainable farming practices that support the health of our planet and provide delicious, healthy food for our customers.
We’re passionate about ethical farming practices. We take pride in growing delicious herbs, vegetables, and smoked trout with love and care for the planet.
Our farming methods are simple and natural, as we don't use any fertilizers, pesticides, or antibiotics. We treat our trout with love and respect by keeping stocking densities in our ponds low and using only fingerlings from a hatchery in Yorkshire.
We're also committed to reducing our carbon footprint, and use water recirculation to cut water usage by up to 90%. Our aquaponics system creates a balanced ecosystem which provides a mutually beneficial symbiotic relationship between our trout and plants. Our plants grow quicker than traditional farming methods.
To ensure our fish are healthy and thriving, we only use organic feed in our fish ponds. And to further reduce our environmental impact, we've installed solar panels that help power our farm, reducing our carbon footprint even further.
Doing the right thing
We believe in using ethical and environmentally responsible farming practices that prioritise the health of the planet, our customers and employees. Our dedication to using natural and sustainable farming methods while avoiding harmful chemicals and fertilisers reflects our value of doing the right thing. We know that our choices have an impact on the environment and we strive to make responsible choices in everything we do. We acknowledge we have a role to play in creating a healthier, more sustainable future for everyone.
In harmony with nature
We are committed to reducing our carbon footprint and environmental stewardship. We believe passionately in the importance of adopting a circular economy model that minimises waste. Our use of water recirculating allows us to reduce our water use by up to 90%. Using solar panels to generate energy further underlines our value of working in harmony with nature.
Being transparent and trustworthy
We are committed to transparency and are happy to meet with customers and explain our farming methods. We believe that by being open and honest with our customers, we can build trust and create a better understanding of the importance of sustainable farming practices.
Our emphasis is on creating a positive and healthy work environment for our employees. We believe our team is our greatest asset, and we are committed to creating a supportive work environment where everyone is respected equitably. We believe that our success as a company is directly linked to the well-being and satisfaction of our employees. We prioritise health and safety in our working practices.
We’re all about growing food that tastes better.
Our trout is slow-grown and raised with lots of love and care. We let them follow their natural feeding cycles, and we take the time to make sure they're happy and healthy. We're proud to say that our trout are free from harmful chemicals and antibiotics. They’re fed using organic feed. Nothing else goes into their ponds.
Our artisan smokehouse is where the magic happens. We use traditional methods to smoke our trout, and our expert team hand-slices each piece with precision.
Our herbs, salads, vegetables, and tomatoes are grown exclusively for their unique and exceptional flavours, rather than excess yields or accelerated growth cycles. They grow alongside our trout ponds, and they're fertilised using nutrient-rich water from the trout ponds, creating delicious produce.
We believe in keeping things simple. That’s why we use short delivery routes, avoid blast chilling and maintain short supply chains. Our aim is to deliver our great tasting food fresh from our farm straight to your plate with the lowest possible carbon footprint.
